OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Wade Gaynor hit two home runs to key an eight-run rally and Jake Wells' go-ahead homer in the ninth inning gave Western Kentucky a 10-9 win over Mississippi on Sunday and forced a deciding game in the regional.
The Hilltoppers (42-19) put together a 15-hit performance to eliminate Missouri earlier in the day, then pounded out 20 more as they upset the top-seeded Rebels (42-18). The teams will meet again Monday.
Matt Rice and Gaynor started the rally with solo shots in the seventh inning, then Gaynor tied it at 9 with a three-run homer in the eighth.
The Hilltoppers snapped the Rebels' 11-game regional home winning streak and extended their school record for runs in a season to 536.
